Incoming students are not worried about their safety, despite MSU’s recent scandals

Within the past few months, Michigan State University has taken heat for multiple scandals that put the university’s reputation in jeopardy. Recently, three former MSU football players were sentenced to 36 months of probation exactly one year after they were charged for sexual assault from a party that took place in January 2017.

Nassar survivor works to bring counseling resources to MSU students

While the MSU community works to heal from sexual assaults by Larry Nassar, students and faculty alike are looking for a person to bring about change, hope, and a new way of life for the university.
